    Hello Everyone/Anyone
    I'm just getting started and have some jobs, but I need to submit a bid/proposal. One job is large apartment complex and the other is a chain of drug stores.
    Can anyone give me some incite on how to write the proposal? I have cost out the jobs, but am not sure about the format to use. Are there any free sites that would give me examples of forms or formats to use?
    Thanks, I really would appreciate any help you could give.

    Gopher.com has some good formats to use and they're free. office.microsoft.com has some good templates to use also.

    For your first few jobs how did you get leads for a large apartment complex and a chain of drug stores?
